Blancpain Endurance Series: New Audi R8 LMS ready for BoP testing at Paul Ricard

By Johan Laubscher

Paul Ricard will be hosting the annual SRO Balance of Performance test days at Paul Ricard this week on Wednesday and Thursday - the Blancpain Endurance Series test days.

A brand new 2015 Audi R8 LMS from quattro GmbH will also be among the entrants at the test days, which also includes a number of expected Audi Sport customer racing teams fielding the previous generation of Audi R8 LMS ultra cars.

This will be the first public test of the new 2015 Audi R8 LMS. Laurens Vanthoor posted the first three photos on Instagram, revealing a plain-white Audi R8 LMS at Paul Ricard in France.

More news and coverage of the Paul Ricard test days will be available during this week.
